Located in one of Mt Albert's premium avenues, this delightful character villa will warm your heart at first acquaintance, as it has for over 100 years of family tenure, and it has been a beloved family home for the current owners for the last 41 years. The surprisingly spacious single level floor plan offers three double bedrooms, and generous living spaces, including a large open plan kitchen and family living area, as well as a lovely formal living room complete with a cozy gas fireplace. A further north facing sunroom provides a relaxing area for a home office, or perhaps...a playroom for young children. The home has been fastidiously maintained by the current owners and is presented in impeccable condition, with quality features and finishing evident throughout the home. When you step outside the warm character of the home, you find yourself in another world, an urban tropical oasis, featuring a swimming pool and cabana house, lush foliage and very generous outdoor living spaces, much of these spaces covered for all year use. Further family convenience is provided by a substantial double garage with work benches for the home handyman, and off street parking for several more cars. The Freehold corner site is a substantial 802 square metres offering the security of robust future capital gains from the very valuable land parcel. Mt Albert is one of Auckland's most central premium suburbs and is surprisingly close to the CBD. Easy public transport is close by with bus and rail links a short stroll away, and convenient motorway access is nearby. Friendly Mt Albert Village provides great coffee and daily essentials, popular Kingsland Village with its wonderful bars and restaurants is just a few minutes away also, and Westfield St Lukes Shopping Mall is just a couple of minutes drive. Closer to home at the end of Lloyd Ave, you will love the great coffee and fresh baked bread at Wild Wheat and the awesome Mt Albert Farmers Market each Saturday morning. Lloyd Ave is in zone for all of the very best schools in the area, including highly sought Gladstone School, Kowhai Intermediate and Mt Albert Grammar which also houses the popular Aquatic Centre for family fun. Younger kids will love the famous Rocket Park at the end of the street while parents enjoy a great coffee adjacent. This is a very special home, which must be viewed if you have dreamed of living in this premium location with your family.
